Corrupt politicians: The cause for India's poor growth
India is known all over the world for it's rich culture, great Indian cricket team, intelligent students and Bollywood, as well for 'corruption'. Politicians in India are the core cause for the prevailing corruption
WITH THE development of our nation, we call it a kind of development where people have become smarter and have begun figuring out alternative ways to fool others. The race to be the best never ends, be it by hampering the growth of other – for easy success give bribe and take bribe and we assure that the work is done. Doesn’t it sound interesting to you?
No wonder why India tops the chart in achieving the medal of the most corrupt country, all thanks to our politicians and administrators. These are the people who pledge to serve the country till the last breadth, they take the oath never to deceive and to lie and to work for the progress of their nation.
Well they do invest time and money in the construction of roads, bridges, dams, etc, which last few years and collapse; taking hundreds along to the grave. That is how they are serving us. To my surprise, they actually spend some initial amount for the construction work, what if the raw material is little adulterated (little enough to bring down the bridge after few rains) with some unwanted mixtures of sand instead of cement and clay. The promises made by these fat potbellied politicians who have attained the shape and size by sucking the life blood of the common people are never fulfilled. But I must say, they adhere to their oaths and vows to serve the nation no matter if the services provided are corrupt enough to help the nation tops the corruption chart.

May I ask why all these crooked and shady people are the ones called the future of India and are counted in the elite class? Just because they smell good of the foreign perfume or because they look clean and dirt free as they roam around in the tinted glass, air-conditioned expensive cars. Is this the reason? Well if it is so, I am not convinced.
This is one of the reasons, which is hampering the growth of our dear nation, lack of management and full focus on the elite society after all these are the ones feeding these gluttonous politicians dressed in white from toe to head as symbol of purity and truth with hot and juicy meat balls wrapped in thousand rupee notes with each passing day. That is why poorer section is at the same place where it was 20 years back whereas the richer are getting richer by every passing day. What a strange saying: The real India dwells in the darkness (rural India). I would say it is true, because 60 per cent of the still illiterate population lives here in the darkness who listens to the speeches made by our very own politicians, promising them the basic amenities. The person here grows old waiting for the bulb he hung in his teens to light up and not only that he assures his grandchildren that the one day their small village will also be blessed with the power supply.
This is the kind of economy where false promises bloom and illiterate politician those who have a criminal background keep winning the elections one after the other. Sadly we do nothing but become accomplice in the crime by merely casting our votes without any detailed information about our future leader. Why one hesitate to take a plunge in this filth and take a vow to sweep off corruption from his country by simply being aware of the surrounding.
